Re: KR Zero-One announcement trailer

Zero-One's suit design has definitely grown on me, though admittedly I thought it was pretty ugly when I saw the first leak (then again, if I can get used to Ex-Aid's design it makes sense that I can get used to this). Interesting choice that none of the suits seem to have a mouth, though. It certai...

Re: Which resolution do you usually download TV-Nihon videos at?

It can depend on my mood, but I'll generally download something at 720p if I'm hyped for it or plan to share it with others (otherwise I'll go with SD, especially if I'd like to watch sooner rather than later). I usually watch on my laptop, which only has a height of 768, so even aside from file siz...

Re: Ryusoulger 17 released

Huh; neither Bamba nor Towa have their character arcs undone, but it's kinda weird that they're still walking around on their own. I'm also not sure if my attempted predictions of two separate twists that never materialized (namely, Mosa Rex only pretending to be pretending and the kid being the rea...

Re: Every Single Ultraman Series Is Making Its Way to the United States

According to SciFiJapan, the marketing VP said they'll “bring the Ultraman catalog to North American audiences through a multi-faceted release model... in tandem with the classic series, we will also be releasing the more recent series and films to appease fans of both classic and modern Ultraman.” ...

Re: Ryusoulger 16 released

Well, the awkward fun-to-fight transition was enough to tip me off that it was probably a Sakamoto episode, but as another member mentioned earlier, it really is hard to be mad at almost anything when the action and choreography are as good as they are. Not gonna lie, though, my favorite decision ma...

Re: Ryusoulger 15 released

The action was definitely a step up from standard Sentai; I've got to hand it to Sakamoto on that point. I also tend to like (reasonably limited) exposition dumps, so the extra worldbuilding was nice; additionally, the new Druidon continues to feel more intriguing than the last one (even if he's pro...

Re: Ali Express Selling TV-Nihon Splashes as Bedsheets

From what I can tell, AliExpress is somewhat notorious for pirating stuff (my BIONICLE social circle has long noted its inferior carbon copies and somewhat weird remixes), so I can't say I'm extremely surprised.

Re: Be the (Zero) One!: Build Mark II

Actually, speaking of references to previous riders, giving two main riders in a row hyphenated words that start with Z and O feels a little weird (Zero-One just after Zi-O?). Admittedly the kana themselves aren't as related as the English letters, but it still feels like an odd choice.

Yeah; it looks like they're just re-using the old silhouette for now (Zi-O's image vs. Zero-One's image)

Re: Ryusoulger 10 released

This episode was more satisfying than I was expecting. I'm glad the could've-been kinda-romance subplot I was fearing went nowhere, and Asuna's more comedic angle didn't seem to interfere with the story's (and, in fact, her own) more serious moments. Unlike the last episode, which seemed to want to ...

Re: Ryusoulger 09 released

I'll say this much: the beginning felt extremely cliche until it didn't. My main issue with the plot is the same as other posters'; it feels like the rest of the Ryuusoulgers should've realized that something was afoot earlier on, and making Melto average enough to notice that magical treasure chest...

Re: Avengers Endgame

Gonna go with a spoiler-free version first off. First of all, Endgame feels like a thank you to the entire fans for sticking around with the MCU, so the more you've seen the more you'll appreciate (which isn't to say that is solely comprised of Marvel fanservice, although a couple of sequences may f...

Re: Ryusoulger 08 released

Overall, Melto's character seems to be treated a little better here than he was in prior episodes, but maybe that's because there was basically nothing defining him earlier. With that said, this feels like the second episode (after #3) where it feels like human life having value should be part of an...

Re: Ryusoulger 07 released

Huh. My main "I liked this" comment was on how fantastic the out-of-suit fight scenes were (particularly anything with Koh), so it makes sense that this was Sakamoto. I actually liked the directing here better than the average Sakamoto work (the transitions between calm and action don't seem particu...

Re: Ryusoulger 06 released

Okay, first of all I'm going to have to dump the science of how poison becomes contagious and just say it's a minosaur thing. There were a few good points in this episode; Koh letting himself get bitten was a neat scene, and I'm liking the increased weight of the masters (or one of them, at least), ...
